The geometry trend is still going strong and it’s not too late to jump on the bandwagon! Maybe you’ve tried it with your clothing, jewelry, or a few other things, but have you given your home a taste? There are many ways to add geometry to your décor, and it’s probably easier than you might think. While some projects may require a little more brainwork (and elbow grease!), you don’t have to go back to school or even remember any mathematical equations – just pick a tutorial, start with one or two simple shapes, and start creating your own diy geometric projects!

 

1. Hanging Planter

Here’s a geometry project that’s quick and easy! Map it out beforehand or just experiment a bit. And if you don’t want to do this directly on the wall, consider trying it on a large piece of wood, in a big frame, or on your office corkboard!

A little accessorizing can go a long way and these wood trivets certainly prove it. Come up with your own designs or draw inspiration from the ones seen on A Beautiful Mess. And if you’re not sure about using them to hold hot pots and pans, why not hang them on a wall as art instead?

15. Bear Doormat

Add some real shape to your home with a few of these diy geometric projects for furniture, wall art, and more! 20 DIY Geometric Projects for Your Home ~Tipsaholic.com #geometric #decorating #diy

Your guests will hardly want to wipe their feet on a doormat like this one! Trace or draw your bear (or animal of choice) onto the back side of a straw doormat and cut him out with a sturdy pair of scissors. The geometric lines can be burned into the mat, but you might try just painting it.

 

16. Centerpiece Boxes

Little projects can have a big impact in your home too – just look at these incredible candles! Use the printable templates from How Did You Make This? to fold geometric molds for shaping the wax. If you need some help getting started, try a simple candle-making kit.

 

 

20. Concrete Planters

Add some real shape to your home with a few of these diy geometric projects for furniture, wall art, and more! 20 DIY Geometric Projects for Your Home ~Tipsaholic.com #geometric #decorating #diy

You can get creative with these planters before and after making them! Because of shipping costs for such a heavy item, the best place to find the concrete mix for the project is at your local home improvement store. Once you’ve made your triangles and allowed them to dry, you can arrange them in many fun patterns!

 If there’ one thing a princess-loving girl can appreciate, it is that fabulous princess hair! Follow these detailed tutorials and learn to create some of the most memorable princess hairdo’s to date – all it takes is a bit of creativity, a comb, and some hairspray. Your little princess is sure to go crazy for these new styles, all inspired by her favorites in Disney royalty!

1. Belle’s half up-do

Belle’s classy half up-do seen during her romantic evening with the Beast is a great hairstyle for school but elegant enough for an event. Dress it up with a pretty ribbon or a tidy little bow. In lieu of a Velcro roller to create the “bump,” you may use a rolled nylon stocking or similar piece of soft material.

2. Snow White’s curly bob

Although this tutorial shows how to turn longer hair into a faux bob, the curling and pinning methods used to create Snow White’s look will work great on short hair too. Don’t forget Snow’s classic red bow headband!

3. Jasmine’s tiered ponytail

This Jasmine hairdo is a dressier version of the basic ponytail, making it a great go-to for mornings when the girls are running a little late! Part hair on one side and drape it loosely into the ponytail to add even more Princess Jasmine flair.

4. Ariel’s elegant swoop

Ariel’s “swoopy” bangs and loose curls were perfect for her first dinner at Prince Eric’s castle, and any little girl will look just as fabulous in this hairstyle. Take the swoop down a notch if you’re looking for a look that’s a bit less characterized or add a few seashells to amp it up!

5. Elsa’s coronation hair 

Elsa’s coronation look is a great way to keep hair back and away from the face in an elegant way. Just start at the front and keep twisting until all the hair is gathered and curled into a bun. Oh, and of course the look wouldn’t be complete without a tiara!

6. Anna’s coronation hair

Make this cute up-do your girl’s go-to for parties and events! Anna’s coronation hairstyle might look complicated, but the instructions from CuteGirls Hairstyles make it very doable. The tutorial uses a purchased braid headband like this one, but also suggests how to use real hair to form the braid in front, just like Anna.

7. Cinderella’s up-do

Simple and sweet like Cinderella, try this easy up-do on any busy morning! This is a style that can work for many lengths of hair and can be dolled up with a bow in the back or, as Cinderella prefers, a headband in the front! Add a little volume in the front to capture even more princess essence.

8. Elsa’s side braid

We’re going to double-up on Elsa hairstyles because, let’s face it, she’s got great hair. And who doesn’t love the loose, wavy braid Elsa styles for herself after letting it go? Avoid those tight, head-numbing braids and try this more relaxed look instead.

9. Rapunzel’s fancy braid 

Follow this tutorial to give the girls Rapunzel’s elaborate braid whether or not their hair is a mile-long. If you really want to capture the look, add some pretty flowers and hair clips.

10. Merida’s tight curls

Merida’s rather unruly curls may not be your cup of tea, but with a bit of taming they can be perfect for a bouncy, spiraled hairdo for the little girls in your life. This tutorial uses plastic drinking straws and bobby pins to create the perfect spiral curl. Short-haired girls can pull off the same technique using straws that have been cut down to size.
